The pilot that visually confirmed reports of an unidentified flying object in the skies over Arizona for air traffic controllers last month has been identified as Blenus Green, an accomplished aviator and retired Air Force B-1B Lancer pilot, and according to him, it wasn’t an airplane.

At right around 3:30 p.m. on February 24th, a Learjet pilot flying at around 37,000 feet reported seeing “something” pass overhead to Albuquerque based air traffic controllers. With no sign of the strange craft on radar, air traffic control sought to confirm the report with other aircraft flying in the vicinity.

“American 1095, uh, let me know if, uh, you anything pass over you here in the next, uh, 15 miles,” the air traffic controller said.

“It’s American 1095. Yeah, something just passed over us,” Green replied moments later. “I don’t know what it was, but at least two-three thousand feet above us. Yeah, it passed right over the top of us.”
